The only thing Ms Cleo did was prove there's a sucker born every minute. Why would someone a Psychic line and presume they will get advice about their life from some poor fool in Call Center? If this person giving you advice was TRULY as psychic one would hope they'd be able to obtain a litttle better gainful employment.

At the bottom of every psychic hotline commercial:
"FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY."

I bet it hasn't been entertaining for all those disgruntled callers. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

If you read the article you'll see that she's been charged with fraud because they do not provide the free 3 minutes that they say they will. They also trump up charges and bully people into paying them.

It has nothing to do with how good she is.

Miss Cleo is a spammer too,I went to her site to check out my free horoscope,just to see how bogus it was,so they had to send it to my e-mail-big mistake,I started getting tons of spam.

This quote is very funny:

"I'm not a psychic but the only crystal ball I have says the FTC will continue to stop unfair and deceptive practices," said J. Howard Beales III, the director of the agency's bureau of consumer protection. "It's a mystery to us why Miss Cleo and her employees haven't seen this coming."

Yah, Glurx is right. Other high qualty sites like Spy Mac and The Register probably get their information from Deon Warwick and the pyschic friends network, which surely never endured such scrutiny and legal trouble. Deon is for the "refined" psychic fan who really wants to get down to business!

I was at Walgreens and saw that Miss Cleo now has her own set of Tarot cards and a board game to help you see the future! Ouch, I sure do hate the way that this kinda crap can pop up where you least expect it.

Reading the title of this thread my first reaction is, "no duh, mon!"
